Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centred, Bible-based recovery programme designed to help people address a variety of hurts, hang-ups and habits.


Tony and Val live in Derby, England. They have been married for more than 40 years and have been blessed with 2 children and 3 grandchildren. Tony has served as Celebrate Recovery UK Regional Director since 2008, overseeing its growth to almost 40 individual groups operating weekly at various locations across the UK.  This requires the assistance of a strong and dedicated UK team who manage the work of Celebrate Recovery UK.

Tony has previously served, along with his wife Val, as one of the pastors of Reach in Derby for over 35 years. Tony and Val have been a part of this church since 1980 and, after visiting Saddleback, started Celebrate Recovery UK initially in Derby in 1998. Tony and Val still oversee the weekly running locally of Celebrate Recovery in Reach Derby and are as passionate about this ministry today as they were 20 years ago.
